“It is a flexible, rubber-tyred form of rapid transit that combines stations, vehicles, services, running way and intelligent transportation systems (ITS)elements into an integrated system with a unique identity” (Zimmerman 2001). The bus rapid transit system follows many categories of which it may be operated. According to (Hardy, Stevens & Roberts, 2001) one type of these services are typically operated on high commuting roads headed for distant locations. Furthermore, they would connect to links of other transportation modes. Most of these services require a dedicated or smi-deticated lanes or shoulders.

Due to the change in demography, rapid urbanization in coastal areas is causing the rapid deterioration of coastal and marine ecosystems. Urban population refers to all the inhabitants dwelling in urban areas as defined by national statistical offices. It is calculated using World Bank population evaluations and urban ratios from the United Nations World Urbanization Prospects. Urban global population is expected to increase to 4.9 billion by 2030. In contrast, the world’s rural population is predicted to decrease by approximately 28 million between 2005 and 2030.
Bus service is one of the competitors for rail transport service. Both of them are categorized as road transport and have many similar characteristics. To investigate and analysis the services of railway transport, I had taken a ride on train from Alor Setar, Kedah to Arau, Perlis. After that, I took bus back from Arau, Perlis to Shahab Perdana, Alor Setar to make a comparison between railway transport and bus services. Through this experience, I can analysis the services of railway transport in the aspects of rail track, terminal, train unit and the power car.
A broad coverage of literature on various factors that could create a framework in designing commercialization area will be discussed in each of this section. A sustainability of transportation concept will be discussed in which light rapid transit will be one of the option to maintain its concern. Following to the answer of sustainability concern in the new transportation system, Transit-oriented Development concept will be presented in order to answer cost efficient issue in city planning. Thus is expected to brought the issue into a bigger stage which involving city plan as a whole system that could support the concept of sustainability. Hereinafter, a case in commercialization design of Transit-oriented Development will be discussed to
The most trips taken during the day in South African areas are generally to education facilities, work facilities and visiting purpose and mode of transport used such as taxis, buses, private cars, motorcycle etc. The volume of trips generated at certain times of the day is a cause of congested traffic facilities. It is important to understand the trip spatial distribution trip making because it is the important element of urban transportation planning. It identifies the need for mobility in urban areas the level at which the transportation satisfies the identified demand the areas where transportation system needs to be improved. The modal distribution of trips in urban areas is related to both the trip purpose and the temporal distribution of a trip, and is generally determined by the costs
Using transportation they can move to any place. Additionally, transportation also gives impact to public whether it a positive or negative when we utilise it. According to Zahayu et al., (2014) the transportation is the movement of goods or people from one place to another. Main of transportation related about complex relationships among networks, space, and demand. This is because any industry always using transportation for sending the goods to the customer while people also using transport to move whether they using a private or public vehicle.
The purpose of this research is to identify the customer’s perception toward public road transport at Kota Bharu in order to determine the use of public road transport among the citizen and to understand what 's role of public road transport in the Kota Bharu, Kelantan. There are different stations for buses travelling around Kelantan and long distance buses to other states. The state 's main bus terminal is in the centre of Kota Bahru. If you 're driving, there are good roads linking the main towns throughout the state of Kelantan. Public buses are operated by Company Kenderaan Melayu Kelantan (SKMK), and a network of local buses connects the capital with all towns in the state.
The filth and infrastructural degradation that have over taken Onitsha is as a result of poor urban planning. The failure of land sub-division and servicing programmes to keep pace with rapid urban growth has led to wide spread illegal and informal developments, hence the growth of squatter settlements or slum areas, for instance, the housing clusters at Okpoko, Fegge, Woliwo, Odoapku. Etc. According to Elekwa (1991), many development projects carried out in these areas were without regard to the environment and this poses potential health problems and other hazards such as flooding, congestion, confusion etc. This has hindered the extension of not only of water, electricity and solid waste collection services, but also adequate sanitation arrangements and road networks to such areas.
According to the World Bank (1999), three successive transport projects in Ghana between 1987 and 1998, saw the construction of economically important roads with rigorous maintenance programs instituted to curb the deterioration of roads in the country leading to reduced transport costs, stimulation of exports and improvement in the mobility of passengers and goods. Roads in Ghana are managed by three agencies (Ghana Highway Authority, Department of feeder roads and Department of Urban roads) who all report to the ministry of Roads and Highways. Oliver (2015) reports that only one-fifth of the nation’s roads are paved. He further noted that the quality of the country’s roads ranged from first - class roads ( asphalt surfaced ) to a third-class unsurfaced roads. A greater chunk of monies from the Road Fund, Consolidated Fund and donor funds have been used in road construction and expansion in the country of which between the periods 2002 and 2007, US$ 1 billion was put into road expansion
